Posted on 12/04/2013 5:28:09 AM PST by Servant of the Cross
Mark Pryor, the incumbent Democratic senator from Arkansas up for reelection next year, is releasing a new TV ad Wednesday in which he invokes his belief in God. The ad first aired on the news broadcast on ABC affiliate KATV in Little Rock Tuesday evening.
"I'm not ashamed to say that I believe in God and I believe in His word," says a bespectacled Pryor, who is holding an open Bible. "The Bible teaches us no one has all the answers--only God does. And neither political party's always right." Watch the ad and news report on it below:

Pryor, a relatively moderate Democrat who nevertheless voted for Obamacare in 2010, has struggled to defend the law and his vote ....

That's why you ALWAYS vote with Dingy Harry, eh Mark?
Is God to blame for Obamacare and millions of Americans losing their health insurance?? Is God to blame for the IRS auditing a man with cancer who had his insurance cancelled and who dared to speak out about it? Is God responsible for bowing to Harry Reid on every important vote and then blah-blahing about what the terrible consequences those votes imposed on the rest of us? Did God provide the needed 60th vote to pass this fiasco?? NO, YOU did, Mr. Pryor.
Did he vote for ObamaCare, which requires Christians to finance the killing of unborn citizens? The slobbering Democrat media won’t ask him that question. They save all their abortion questions for Christians running for office as Republicans.
If Pryor is serious about his faith then let him come out of the Democrat party and separate himself from them. From those who booed God at their Party convention. From those who booed Israel at their convention.
Leveraging God for personal gain while not requiring personal responsibility is wrong.
He can just run on Obamacare. Debbie Washerman Schultz says he’ll cruise to victory on it. So has Nancy Pelosi, if memory serves.
Is it possible to be a collectivist and a follower of Jesus?
The two are opposed to each other in so many ways.
Not everyone who says to me, Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven. On that day many will say to me, Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many deeds of power in your name? Then I will declare to them, I never knew you; go away from me, you evildoers. ... Matthew 7: 21-23
Leveraging God for personal gain while not requiring personal responsibility is wrong.
In the Senate elections next year, the Republicans have to emphasize that each Red/Purple State Dem provided the key vote to pass this fiasco - if ONLY ONE of them - Pryor, Landrieu, Hagan, Warner, Shaheen, Udall, Franken - had stood for principle several of them now tout when it is immaterial, the devastation and injury this mess will cause would have been avoided. Each of them instead, provided the essential 60th Vote - we cannot allow them to distort history now that it has turned out to be an utter disaster.
Man, this guy is already throwing the Hail Mary.
“I believe in God”,that’s your pitch? Your running for the Senate, not applying for the preacher’s job.
Right on point.
The honorable way out of the self imposed mess you participated in is resign your Senate seat and become a preacher.
Maybe not, but there's always one political party that is always WRONG! Yours.
How does this crap get past the editors?
Oops, silly me, it's the Weakly Standard.
He had ads like this before. Wait for the ones with him in cam0 getting out of a puck-up and carrying a shotgun with a dog running around.
How can you believe in God and believe in abortion?
The two cannot exist side by side.
Excellent point. In political ads in each of their states next year, conservatives ought to have a picture of these quislings (unflattering, of course), with a blood-red graphic reading: The 60th Vote for ObamaCare. After all, they own it and should not get to weasel their way out of that deciding vote that Harry Reid and Obama needed to pass this unconstitutional turkey.
God ain’t gonna save you now, boy.
Voting for Obamacare is a smear on any Life record. I hope Cotton smacks him upside the head with that.
There are lots of bad Republicans, there are no good Democrats. ... Ann Coulter

Yeah, where was he in condemning last year's convention where his delegates .... BOO'ed God?!
So, he’s another Pelosi democrat? Evidently THEIR God is not troubled by their support of abortion, euthanasia, “slavery to sin”, etc. And, they obviously are not dreading the Day of Judgment by God, Himself. They need to hear Jonathan Edwards’ sermon “Sinners in the Hand of an Angry God”. Not that it would even prick their conscious, because, as Scripture so aptly states, their consciences deceive them until they are hardened.
I do not wish Hell on anybody, honestly, but these politicians that think they can flash the God card at will, especially for re-election purposes, are in for a rude awakening on the day they pass from this temporary life into eternity. I pray that they wake up in time to right their souls with their Creator. Straight and NARROW is the path to the Gates of Heaven, and few there be that find it. Wide is the path to Hell, and MOST people will treasure their worldly desires more than eternity because they were never truly awakened to the reality of their sin condition, the fact that God IS real, the True Gospel, and that there truly is a day of judgment coming.
I have a cousin who lives in Arkansas that was always a Democrat....more of an old style Democrat but still a Democrat. About 5 years ago we had a talk and that was the question I put to him.
All Democrats support abortion. How can you vote for anyone that is in favor of or supports murder when you claim to be a Christian?
I think he realized he could no longer be a Democrat. When we talk politics he has a different tone now.
Former Senator Blanche Lincoln told us she would not vote for the Obama health care plan. Then she did. Now she is gone.
Start sweating Pryor! We got our eyes o you!
thanks for the list!!-
Think the GOP would do the same?-
the crickets are loud at the grand ol party offices
WRONG. The Bible teaches us what the answers are, and then commands us to live accordingly.
Buh bye Mark. Say hello to Blanche when you’re sent back home.
The Democrats can run, but they can’t hide, especially after hundreds, thousands and maybe even tens of thousands of folks start being killed by obamacare towards the end of January when they no longer have medical insurance or medical care from their doctors because obamacare cancelled their insurance and they were unable to obtain comparable insurance or medical care.
I’m talking about chronically ill people who are being kept alive by highly specialized treatments by highly specialized doctors in highly specialized treatment centers. You don’t treat cancer, hemophilia, cystic fibrosis, psoriatic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, childhood genetic diseases, and thousands of other such diseases in the ER.
Those are the people who will truly suffer and die because their existing insurance has been cancelled and they are unable to sign up for new insurance, or unable to afford new insurance, or are offered only policies that no longer include their existing specialized care givers.
Obama and the Democrats are going to have blood on their hands if they persist in trying to implement their totally unworkable legislation when it starts to kill innocent children. We need to show the nation that blood so we can end this horror.
You’re in the anti-God party, Pryor.
